Pros: Good sound for the price. Some nice features. Works OK as far as i can tell, no issues yet. Good customer service.
Cons: The headsets were absolutely filthy, just gross. No way I was putting them on my head. Unknown gunk in every control and crack. Leather pads on the speakers were both ripped. Not that any of this mattered as they were shipped in an envelope, not a box, and were destroyed in shipping. Second set came in a box and were a bit better but showed lots a wear. At this point I'm disappointed but tied of being without a headset.
Summary: there is a plastic pivot point that breaks easily on both sides of the headset. My first headset broke on the left side, with microphone and G buttons, at the pivot point while removing it from my head. I lifted it off my ear and it snapped. I was upset but purchased another one since I had the first one for more that a year of daily use. The second one broke on the right side at the pivot point after dropping it because the cord got caught around my chair arm.
Summary: Have had these headphones for 2 years and the performance and sounds is excellent. The 7.1 surround is absolutely amazing when watching blu-ray movies. However... the mute button stopped working after 6 months of use. When using these for gaming being able to mute your mic with the press of a button is important and polite to others.
Summary: I've been using these for a few months now. They're much higher quality than the headphones I'd been using, but I'm afraid I'm not a big fan. While the audio is noticeably better, as well as my voice through the microphone with programs like Ventrilo and TeamSpeak, I have some issues: * These headphones are too snug on my head. Granted, I've had this problem with basically every set of 'phones I've owned, but I was hoping these, at this price, would have more "give.
Summary: I felt like my head would explode from all the pressure these suckers put out. I have a fairly small head size. I also had read some reviews that claimed they were tight before buying it, and I thought to myself, naah my head is very small, can't happen to me. Surprise, surprise they really hurt after an hour of play. The mac compatibility is pretty weak, no surround sound or any adjustments, I hear that the mic has some problems as well, but I haven't tested myself.
Summary: It sounds great, though it should for the price. The problem I have with it is it is just soooo uncomfortable. The problem is the headband is so tight that it puts a large amount of pressure on my ears, which I would end up feeling within an hour or so as sharp, stabbing pains in the sides of my head. Some time on a hat stretcher might help, but I'm just going to return it and get something lighter and more comfortable.
Summary: Ok first of: Quality-wise, this is a great headset. I like the materials, I like the sound quality, the cord quality, etc. The ONLY problem I found with these is the WEIGHT. They are very uncomfortable after a couple of hours of use. Right on the top of your head it hurts bad because the earphones are really heavy and sometimes can give you headaches or neck aches (at least it did to me).
Summary: Ok. the reason I gave 2 stars is because the sound quality is good. But what about the headphone? This is definitely not for a gamer who never take off the headphone for more than 2 hours. Why? The 'leather' ear pad starts to tear off into bits when you start to sweat. And of course, your ear temperature will rise when it sit inside the ear-cup for 2 hours. Seriously, I freaked out when I saw the mirror with all those little dots around my ear(Cuz I have short hair too).
Summary: This headset is quite sturdy-feeling and with 3 selectable head cushions you can find a comfortable fit. The device conveniently connects directly via USB, and acts as a 7.1 surround sound audio device on its own. When properly worn, they isolate surrounding noises quite well, which is always a plus in loud LAN parties. However, I was severely disappointed with their sound quality for two reasons: first, the bass response is really poor.
Summary: While it works well the headphone software is having problems with windows 7. I can not get the sound manager to open to select default device sometimes. It interferes with listening to music from a external drive connected via usb.
